Sports were around before the 21st century, but I am guessing you are only counting the years you were alive for.
The Dodgers plan on using Young, 36, as a bench player who can spell third baseman Juan Uribe and first baseman Adrian Gonzalez as well as pinch hit. He is batting .272 with eight home runs and 41 RBIs this season.

Why #26: I’ve been following Rob Rasmussen for a long time because he played high school locally at Pasadena Poly, then spent his college years at UCLA. I could never believe how good he was despite his short stature, but he has seemed to find success where he goes. Not only that, but he is also a workhorse as he’s logged over 140 innings in each of his first two full seasons as a pro. He has a 4-pitch mix and while he maxes out at 92 mph, it’s his curveball, slider, and location of his pitches that allow him to get by. While I don’t think Rob will ever be a great big league pitcher, I do think he has what it takes to eventually settle into the back of a big league rotation. He’s proven he can compete with the best of them, and it will be interesting to see where his career goes from here.
